I love teaching, but this award humbles me, because so many excellent teachers surround me in the College of Pharmacy and are as deserving. I teach and coordinate a service-learning course titled Care And Respect for the Elderly (CARE). The course is based on the philosophy of "active learning" and requires each student to provide social support and companionship to an elder. Student learning is evaluated in small group discussion sessions. The "aha!" moments experienced by students are frequent and make teaching an absolute joy. There is nothing like it!
